How do you pay the rent?
How else do you fill your days?
Michael: I’m an avid runner, Muay Thai kickboxer, and motorcycle lover. [Pictured: “The Baby,” 11]. I hang with my wife, Donna , and dog, Riley, most of the time when I’m not at the restaurants.
Daniel: Training (Jiu Jitsu), riding the bike, and learning to play the trombone.
Who are you following these days and why?
Michael: @vice because they are not afraid to express how they feel. They are one of the most creative gorilla journalist teams I’ve ever witnessed.  @bretmichaels for respecting the grind , and @chefholzman just because…
Daniel: @snoopdogg on Twitter, cuz he’s Snoop. And Kinfolk [magazine] because I like what they do. [4, 5]
Let’s get scouting. A self-portrait?
Daniel: I am receiving my purple belt from Renzo Gracie at his academy on 30th Street [in NYC]. 
Daniel: Not really my pet, but how often do you walk out of a bar in the LES and see a full-blown jungle cat hanging by the garbage? I watched as many drunk people tried to take her home. 
What’d you do last weekend?
We took a trip out to San Francisco to cook dinner at a pal’s restaurant, Hopscotch, in Oakland. 
The one photo that you refuse to delete from your phone?
Daniel: Here I am standing outside of Stanton Street before we opened. We still have the old restaurant’s awning up and the paper in the windows.
